More praise for A Walk Through A Window:

“OMG! What can I say? This was an awe-inspiring book – no words to describe it! Go buy it, right now! My serious opinion is that this book was one of my all time favourites. I loved it. It’s thrilling, it’s detailed, and it totally draws you in. I actually ended up crying at one point; yes, it can happen! I would give it a gazillion stars, but since our reviews are out of 5, then I give it FIVE EXPLODING STARS”

— Rachael (age 12) Kids WWWrite Issue #46, for ‘A Walk Through A Window’


“If you want fantastical, suspenseful fiction with your history, then a book by kc dyer is your route. In A Walk Through A Window, she’s woven tales of Canada’s diverse beginnings, with a very contemporary story about a teenager whose imagination needs a little jolt of inspiration not readily offered in today’s information age.”
— The Globe and Mail
